A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association
links dental x-rays to low-weight babies. Women who gave birth to
low-weight babies, the study says, were more than twice as likely to
have had multiple dental x-rays.
That's an interesting find, but the
real story is that modern dental work is extremely toxic to pregnant
women and their fetuses. And it's not just the radiation from x-rays,
either: dentists use a great number of toxic chemicals and substances in
modern dental work, and many such substances -- such as mercury fillings
-- are left in the patients' mouths for decades, where they slowly
poison them. Dentists don't call them mercury fillings, of course: they
use the safer-sounding "silver fillings" description, to hide the fact
from patients that they're actually putting an extremely potent nerve
toxin into their mouths.
Getting back to x-rays, I always find it
amusing to see the x-ray operator at the dentist office fleeing from the
machine before they zap patients. If x-rays are so safe, why are these
people always making sure they're as far away from the machine as
possible? The truth is that x-rays are simply bad for your health. The
more x-rays you get, the worse the effect. Certainly, x-rays are
sometimes necessary for good dental work, but I also suspect there are a
whole lot of x-rays taking place for no reason other than to create a
billable activity. Studies show, for example, that people with dental
insurance receive a far greater number of x-rays than those who pay for
dental care out of their own pocket. Coincidence? Yeah, right...
